Suggested Reflection Questions

  • In the first reading, God says he will put Eliakim in a position of power. When was a time you had to step up as a leader? Why do you think God chose you for that role?
  • The second reading talks about the depth and richness of God’s mind. What’s a question you want to ask God? What do you imagine the answer might be?
  • In the Gospel, Simon Peter recognizes Jesus as the Son of the Living God. When was a time you met or saw someone famous or very important? How did you feel when you met them? What do you imagine it was like to recognize Jesus as the Son of God?
